Welcome
Mercy is a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for PreK4 through 8th grade.
We educate students to be life-long learners and prepare them to be leaders who are ready to serve.

Our mission is to develop and honor each student spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, creatively, and physically. Guided by Catholic beliefs, our diverse community invites each child to live and serve in a changing society as a self-respecting and responsible citizen.

Dear Folks,

 

Happy New Year! January is traditionally the month we honor the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. It is a time to reflect on how we relate as a family and to ask for the Intercession of the Holy family.

 

In September, our Holy Father, Pope Francis, will be in Philadelphia to celebrate World Meeting of Families. As we begin this year of 2015, let us pray for families throughout the world and in particular for our Mercy family. Jesus Mary and Joseph pray for us.
 
Sister Geri Rogers, SSJ

Our Lady of Mercy is an amazing place my children are learning to be better people and to let their actions be guided by God. Academically they are pushed to excel, socially they learn how to be part of a larger community, and spiritually they learn to have compassion for others. Mercy is a wonderful environment where I feel my children are not only safe, but enriched daily.

Rebecca Seeber
OLM is very comprehensive and addresses every aspect of a child's development. Students are held to high academic standards and challenged to their fullest potential.
 
Denise Steele

Our Lady of Mercy's academics are second to none but to us, the true sense of family and the warmth which exudes from this school is unlike anything we had ever experienced. Once you walk through the doors of Mercy, you instantly feel as though you are home and the comfort this provides is amazing.

 
Kim Vargas 

“We wanted the best education we could get for our children. After having met with staff, we “walked the halls” with two middle school students at Mercy. Along with OLM’s outstanding reputation, we were able to engage with our boy and girl tour guides.  They looked us in the eye and spoke articulately.  Combined with these factors and the excellent Catholic education, Mercy was a natural choice.  It is the best decision we could have made with respect to our children.”

Jim Babcock

“My children are receiving the best education, due to the quality of the teaching staff, in a loving and caring environment that is very respectful.”

Katy O’Kennedy

"Every morning I drop my children off at OLM school, I have peace of mind knowing they will be not only be getting a great intellectual education but also a spiritual education as they will be surrounded by Christian moral beliefs." 

Lilia Vieyra
We chose Mercy because we knew that our children would not only grow academically, but spiritually and socially and be better prepared to face life's challenges with the problem solving skills, faith and social skills needed in today's complex world!!!
